The Arab Is physically and Intellec

Arab world prosperous, but; we have

are only acquainted with the social
and political 'conditions unde which

Italy Tops Timber Reserves.
To provide the necessary timber for
the use of the army since the war be
gan, "recourse has been made to the
Immense forests of Slla In Calabria,
southern Italy. Before the war tho
country Imported two-thirds of the tim
ber required annually for the use of
the civil population from abroad, prin
cipally from Austria, and no small
problem was presented to tho author
ities by the necessity of providing the
enormous quantity of timber needed
for the miles of trenches and for all
the temporary buildings which have
been erected behind the front. Com'
mlttees were set up to devise a .metho
dical system by which, In all the woods
anywhere near the zone of the1 wnr all
cutting down should be done that was
possible without complete titforcstU'
tlon., To further the felling of the
timber hi the forest of Slla roads jinve
been cut and quantities of machinery
set up. It is expected that the district

A new type of airplane 'has been

, WASTED A CARLOAD OF FOOD
Dealers Dumped Radishes Into Sea In
Order to Keep Up Prices,
It Is Claimed.
Because food dealers in this town
did not find It convenient to hnndle n
carload of fresh food, the food is now
flnntlnir out to sen as refuse from a
garbage dump, says the New York
Before the dealers threw away this
food they made an effort to have the
health department condemn It. The de
partment refused. It found the food
perfectly sound nnd fit for use.
The particular carload of food con
sisted of 10T baskets of radishes.
Radishes are retailing for from 5 to
8 cents n bunch. .
In this case either tho radishes
could be passed on to the city's mar
kets at a slightly reduced price or
they could be destroyed.
If passed on they would have the ef
fect of "bearing down" the price of the
more attractive produce, so they were
wasted and the prices kept at a high

Growing In the Mind
It Is said that Coleridge once ex-1
claimed to Charles Lamb: "I could
write pluys Just ns well as bnake
speare, if I had n mind tol" "Yes,"
said Lamb, "that is Just what you
luck." It Is n blessing, however, that
even though we may not be able to (
uo uic wons oi'u ureal kvuius, c
may count upon growth In strength
nnd breadth of mind. You can do
with your mind today what you could
not do five years ago. If you will
give your mind an opportunity to
grow by hard, honest, faithful, severe
work, you will bo nble to do much
more five years from now than you
are able to do today. If your mind
becomes poisoned with low Ideals,
with poor literuturc, with wrong con
ceptions of life, you may ns well ex
pect It to grow, ns to expect n plant
to grow In your garden when you
have allowed every sort of plant en
emy to burrow nboutthe roots and
feed on tho stalks and letups.
Sea Gives Up Eatables.
Early strollers on the beaches ns
far north ns Belmar recently recov
ered from the surf enough food to stock
a country grocery, says n Sea Girt,
N. Y., dispatch to the New York Times.
The flotsam Included ennned goods
of many sorts, tjnt mostly tomntocs
and asparagus ; one man carried home
three tubs of good butter nnd many
clothesbaskcts full of lemons, all of
which were fresh and hard. Submarine
activity was scouted as a cause for the
pickings, but one guess ns to tfielr
origin was that some vessel, a warship
or possibly a big yuchr, returning from
a long cruise had passed up the coast
and her crew had emptied the lurder
overboard -so as to be certain of abso
lutely fresh provisions when next they
put to sea.
War In Ye Olden Times.
In Gen. Sir George nigginson's in
teresting book on Jhe.Cjrlmcan wnr, tho
following passage In which HIgglnson
writes home from Malta1 occurs : "You
have heard, I dare gay, of the adven

could not sink, for, after taking the
crew out as prisoners bho found that
one unfortunate man had been left be
hind In her.
